    I have just finished bf and now ff Katie but I'm not sure how much to give her or how long between feeds.
    I was going for 6oz every 4 hours does this sound about right?
    She goes to bed at 7pm and wakes around 12 and 4 for a feed I going to try a dream feed at 11pm instead would anybody recomend it?

    Adam has 4 feeds of 210ml (7oz), at approx 4-hourly intervals, 8am, 12pm, 4pm and then bedtime, around 10-10.30pm. he doesn't always finish the bottles, leaves 1/2-1oz sometimes.

    we don't dreamfeed - he wouldn't do it, and no need, we just let him sleep downstairs till bedtime (so usually about 7 or 8pm till 10pm) and then he wakes for the bedtime routine and a bottle with his daddy. he's fine after that till 8am.

    Our little guy has about 160-180 mL each feed which is about every 3 to 3.5 hrs.

    As for dreamfeeding, some folks find it works for them while others may have issues. We've almost got it down to a pat so hubby DF's him at about midnight and he's good to go till about 7 or 8 am.
